I had my regular periods for the past 4 months and have not had a risk since jan can I still be pregnant?

Basically, my boyfriend and I rubbed genitals (no penetration or direct ejaculation) during new years. Since then I have not missed a period. It was just as heavy and came on time. I have had no symptoms whatsoever and no weight gain. And there is no bump. I feel completely normal. However, I have read many articles on women having their periods while pregnant and not having symptoms. Is this possible in my case?

Dear, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

If you are having your periods, you cannot be pregnant. Some women may have spotting during pregnancy. This is not the same as having a period. There is a risk of pregnancy when a woman has unprotected sex with ejaculation inside her vagina or (rarely) on the opening.
